That list is an ABSOLUTE JOKE. Seriously. Adam Miller in the top 10? One scout pretends as if he has never even heard of Jay Bruce with the comment in his write up
When told that Bruce would be topping our Top 50 list, one scout said, "Wow, that's got to be one special bat for a corner outfielder to be No. 1." The implication is that since Bruce won't end up playing a premium position and isn't as pure a five-tool player as some other outfielders on this list, he must be able to flat-out rake if the scouting industry considers him to be the best prospect in all baseball.
How can I honestly take a list serious when one of the people involved in making it says he must have a special bat if....? It comes off like the guy doesn't even know who he is. I think Bruce is the #1 prospect in baseball and would be very surprised if any list didn't have him at #1, but just wow.
Adam Miller was #14 last year. This year he pitches 65 innings, allows 68 hits, a .265 BAA and a 4.82 ERA in AAA and moves up 4 spots?!
Cameron Maybin at #3.... simply wow is all I can say.
Andrew McCutchen at #8? I like the kid and all, but no way is he this high.
